Micro Swiss MK8 All Metal Hotend Kit
Micro Swiss' all metal hotend allows you to print at much higher temperatures than with PTFE-lined hotend.
Another benefit of this all metal hotend design is more consistent melt chamber control. During slow extrusion rates, the transition zone in PTFE-lined hotends, tends to create more stringy prints. With Micro Swiss' all metal hotend upgrade, the transition zone is always constant, since it is located right at the heat break.
Another reason to upgrade to an all metal hotend is that during faster extrusion speeds, PTFE tubes don't have enough thermal conductivity to properly melt all the filament. All metal hotends solve this problem, as the filament is surrounded by thermally conductive material throughout its length.
